Special Circumstances

Limited Data: Circumstances mean that the map is shrouded in fog of war. Units may only see a number of KM equal to their Perception Bonus, but have shared vision.
Neutral Ground: Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia etc. are all part of the Federation of Yugoslavia, a member of the League of Non-Aligned States. If an attack hits Yugoslavia, or If a unit lands on or spends more than a turn on Yugoslavic territory, there will be diplomatic repercussions (Yanmei will, for starters, gain the talent Enemy: Yugoslavs).
Powerful Enemy: Dysangelions Joan and Scholastica appeared, along with a new unidentified Evangelion that we believe is the first sighting of a true 'Mass Production Evangelion'.
Superior Leadership: The Enemy Supreme Commander for this battle is Narendra Gadhavi.
Supply Line (UN): If Bari or Naples are taken, all UN Hordes from the UN Mediterranean Army Group and the 1st Task Fleet take a -15 penalty to any attack made with ranged weapons. If both points are taken, this penalty increases to -40.
Supply Line (UEF): If Turin is taken, all UEF Hordes take a -30 penalty to any attack made with ranged weapons.
Supply Line (Armée d'Italie): If Florence is taken, all UEF Hordes from the Armée d'Italie take a -30 penalty to any attack made with ranged weapons.

Advisor Advice
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "That was a bitter fight. Narendra made us fight for every metre we took as long as he could…"
Liu%20Lin.png?dl=0 "Narendra's forces nearly destroyed Hachi and did more damage to us than the Dysangelions did. In fact, I suspect Narendra deliberately kept them back; his hatred for Bioexotics knows no bounds…"
John2.png?dl=0 "The fellas down in the regular army are doing pretty well, I gotta say. Our mate Narry threw everything he had at Chancy and Hachi, and the lads've come through with a lot less dead than we thought."
Harken2.png?dl=0 "Nonetheless, this battle represents a change in how this war is fought. Joan is creating Angelspawn again. The enemy Dysangelions are deploying in numbers. And there was that one Evangelion…"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "We think it's a Mass Production Model. If that's the case, our greatest strength- the Eva Corps' superior numbers- is rapidly losing its edge."
Liu%20Lin.png?dl=0 "We need to keep our Corps at the peak of strength, then. Losing a unit even for one battle could ruin us completely. The sooner we research upgrades for our Evangelions- structural and biological- the sooner we can even the playing field. That Mass Production Model didn't seem as formidable as a normal Dysangelion, but right now it's more than a match for one of ours in a one-on-one fight."
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Agreed. We need to work on developing and disseminating Anti-Eva tactics to our forces and conserving our strength wherever possible. Wellesley? What do you think?"
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "…"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Wellesley?"
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "… Zzz…"
Rei2.png?dl=0 "… Zzz… ♥"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Oh, good grief…"
Harken2.png?dl=0 "Let the little Duke sleep, Marianne. He's done his fair share of bloody work. More than his fair share…"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Harken…"

Resource Summary

Advisor Advice
Hannelore2.png?dl=0 "Damage, damage, damage… The RAF Air Command took 6 Reserves' worth of damage. Other Armies took only negligible damage. Most of the costs from this battle came from damage to our Evas and Supers. Marchand's unit's damage is worth 5 Reserves, but Hachi's missing arm and other scrapes and gouges cost us 45. Stupid Evangelions. All up, we took 56 Reserves in damage- almost 4 CP worth of damage in total."

Cruel Harpy

Actor Dialogue
- Central Italy was a battlefield. All along the Apennines, infantry entrenched themselves whilst artillery hammered the enemy. The Dorian traded huge broadsides with the Carthage and Byzantium. In the skies, fighters unleashed waves of missiles at each other, turning the air grey with smoke and ash. Rei, Hachi and Yanmei were together, on the outskirts of the Ruin of Rome. Rei kept her shield up, protecting the others, whilst Hachi provided fire support.
Archibaldpog.png?dl=0 "Dirac signature detected! Incoming!"
- Four shapes burst into being atop the Apennines. Two of them were Dysangelions, lean, gamine, with cruel, alien birdlike movements, the visage of hollow empty eyes terrifying. One was not; it was stocky and broad, a huge tower of flesh and carapace wrapped in strange robelike flesh, carrying a massive shield resembling a coffin across its back. But the fourth…
MPEva%20pog.png?dl=0 The fourth was an Evangelion, slender, graceful… But not one they'd ever seen before. Its armour was white, yet cleaved so closely to its flesh that the plates shifted as it moved, the muscles clearly visible moving beneath the armoured surface. It had no wing docks, and its head was bizarre- it was a long, narrow worm-like head, with no visible eyes. It had only a mouth, the scarlet red lips pulled back in the parody of a smile, revealing dozens of heavy, powerful-looking teeth fitting together like the tombstones of a graveyard. It held in its hand a false Lance, and as it turned towards the Eva it opened its jaws and let its long, fat, grey tongue loll out, pointing towards Rei, Yanmei and Hachi.
Yan1.png?dl=0 Yanmei stared, faltering, the grip on her controls slackening at first. That was one of the MPs, wasn't it? The all white design wasn't that different from Go's and Hachi's units… but there were unmistakable differences too. Quickly, she gave her head a bit of a shake.
Yan1.png?dl=0 "First the Deva and now this? God, they've been -busy-, haven't they?"
Rei2.png?dl=0 "Meimei, what should we do?"
Yan1.png?dl=0 "Treat it as if it's a Dysangelion! Don't hold back?"
MPEva%20pog.png?dl=0 The Mass Production Evangelion raised the Lance in front of it. Its AT Field shimmered and coalesced around itself before rushing out in all directions; Yanmei felt her AT Field suddenly diminishing…
Archibaldpog.png?dl=0 "Eva Squad's AT Fields have been neutralised! I'm detecting… Over three hundred target locks on Unit 04 alone!"
Ayanami%20Hachi.png?dl=0 "Ohhh f-"
MPEva%20pog.png?dl=0 "RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"
